Well good news ... /bad news, according to Bleeding Cool's report, DC will continue their bi-weekly shipping on through 2017, for most of their titles, save maybe four.

Great news for us, bad news for people's wallets.
 Cheesy

If I had to speculate, and I don't, I would suspect the following four titles to be the ones going back to monthly status, though I have no actual information to back any of this up:

Green Lanterns - A secondary title, really, so I think this may be slid back sooner rather than later. I know of only 2 poeple reading it out of the three shops I visit, although sales overall seem good.
Cyborg - Just a feeling, but I think the sales, after the initial rush, will almost force this back to monthly. Although DC may try and hang onto this title far longer than sales dictate they should for the JLA membership connection and the black hero solo title thing.
Aquaman - Yes the title is better than I thought it would be, but is it twice monthly better? Not really. The JLA membership MAY also save him, but really, do we need the King of the sea twice a month?

Okay, I only have three titles actually. I can see a reason for drawing back to monthly for a couple more (Deathstroke and Green Arrow ... sorry Jimmy) but that is basically all sales related so I can't really use that as sales are still pretty strong on both. But if it is four and Aquaman is not one of them, I can see the last two I mentioned being the two others.

Again, just my "Onion"

Of course, the ones I'm buying will stay twice monthly.   Cheesy

I can't deny or state anything contrary to what you've put out there Perry. Sales are sales. DC lover that I may be, you couldn't get me to buy Cyborg twice a month either.
